In a continuation to their search for renaissance, the SC Villa interim committee has set dates for the start of the harmonization process of the club’s governance structures, elections and a number of other issues.
The development comes in the wake of the ongoing leadership fracas that has engulfed the Jogoo in the last decade or so, but most notably gathering pace and heat in the preceding months.
“This is to notify you of a physical extraordinary meeting of the paid-up members of the SC Villa Congress that is due to take place at Serena Hotel, Kigo,” read part of the statement.
The statement dated October 10 and addressed to the congress members further confirmed this particular meeting will take place on Saturday October 23, 2021 at 9:00 am
The items on the agenda include a discourse about the governance structure within the Trust and providing a postmodern report about the prematurely stopped club elections.
The other item will be the issue of streamlining the Trust and club governance documents as the club prepares for fresh polls. This work of putting in order club documents has since been assigned to a legal team.
FUFA last week directed the club to conduct the elections by October 23 or risk the football governing body taking over the process. The ultimatum was the second granted to Uganda’s most successful football club in two months.
It is also noteworthy that the presidential elections that had been scheduled for August 28, 2021 were suspended after a court injunction filed by Brenda Nambalirwa Kawuma against the Villa Member Trustees (VMTs).
The same Nambalirwa would later earn an appointment as club CEO replacing Shawn Mubiru, a move that was later challenged by the federation with a suspension of an incumbent that had barely sat in office for a week.
The SC Villa fraternity anxiously wait for the outcomes of this meeting especially in the midst of the storm doing round at the club. Many will hope that the plethora of problems are handled as soon as possible.
